Chicken Tortilla Soup

It's hot as hell. Nobody wants to turn on the oven when it's 100 degrees.  This is one of my favorite recipes as it is so tasty and incredibly easy.  I know that soup isn't what most people want in the summer but it is so light and refreshing that it's totally worth it.


 1 pound shredded, cooked chicken
 1 (15 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, mashed
 1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce
 1 medium onion, chopped
 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers
 2 cloves garlic, minced
 2 cups water
 1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
 2 tablespoons lemon juice
 1 teaspoon cumin
 1 teaspoon chili powder
 1 teaspoon salt
 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
 1 bay leaf
 1 (10 ounce) package frozen corn
 3 cups diced carrots
 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
 1 can of black beans,drained
 7 corn tortilla chips
 vegetable oil
